This is straight out of a murder mystery.

A 54-year-old businesswoman was found dead in her home in Villasis, Pangasinan last week. Police are still investigating the crime but unlike most cases, a report from yesterday revealed that the victim herself left a clue for authorities.

The victim, Remedios Maer, was stabbed 17 times and was found dead in her home on Thursday, GMA News’ State of the Nation reported. Found on the crime scene floor was the word “Keyung” written in what authorities believe was the victim’s blood, radio station DWIZ said.

DWIZ also reported that Maer was alone in her home when the incident happened.

An early report by The Philippine Daily Inquirer was unsure of what the word was referring to but according to GMA News, police found that “Keyung” is the alias of Maer’s former contractor who she was previously in conflict with.

Authorities also found that Keyung had allegedly threatened to hurt Maer.

“That his name was written is important evidence. We also gathered other evidence and found that the two were in conflict and that the suspect had threatened the victim,” Police Chief Inspector Fernando Fernandez, chief of the Villasis Police told GMA News. 

Multiple reports state that the victim’s son Kevin Kyle Maer failed to get a hold of his mother the whole day, which is why he asked his friends to visit her house, leading them to find her lifeless body.

Police are still looking for Keyung and think the crime might have been a case of a robbery gone wrong because two of the victim’s bags and some money were missing.
